    I'm pretty certain there's a group of 'we' here who support Michael Moore on DailyKos.

    Support?  No, actually the claim was "love."  I do like his work, but I can't really claim I "love" him.

      taste is subjective, but just imagine the hole in our culture if there were no Bowling for Columbine or F-911 or Sicko? These movies offer not just counterbalance but a worldview that seldom gets traction anymore in the so called MSM.

      I've heard people call Michael Moore a 'bomb thrower' in the rhetorical sense, and it's always struck me as an unfair if not illiterate criticism. Moore simply contextualizes stuff from the vantage point of a great swath of Americans who are, in fact, middle class and 'average'. The union view, the worker view, the mother who gets up a 4 am to get to daycare and work and then spends an night shift at some rotten service industry job, piling up debt as she works her fingers to the bone.

      You think Cokie Roberts is going to tell that story? George Will? Stephanopolous? Please.

      Moore is news for all the rest of us. The news that the CNN bubble headed bleach blondes (male and female) and Fox hacks of the world can't even begin to grasp as news.

      90% tax on all income over a million or more: a simple solution to funding Healthcare Reform, extending Social Security benefits and other budgetary concerns.
